Excellent cocktails and food

Love the cocktails. Manhatten was perfect. Also "Mississippi Punch" has a lot of character. My favorite meal is the Rissotto. Not usually something I order but tasted it here once and craved it until I could go back and order for myself. Husband felt the meatloaf was very creative and great choice... read more

Service fantastic and server very knowledgeable about menu and local farms and food. We were not rushed, thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will return again! You MUST visit this restaurant if you like farm... More

After wanting to try armsby literally for years, we finally visited with a large group for brunch on Sunday. We all raved about the delicious, locally sourced food, the warm vibe of the place and our super knowledgeable and friendly waiter, T.K. He explained everything and answered all of our questions and made great suggestions, AND told us about the... More

Armsby does a great job with rotating the menu for fresh/seasonal and local farm to table. AMAZING beers on tap, fantastic cocktails none like you will find on any other menu. You are a "foodie"? Stop by and check out the menu, crispy pig ears, delectable cheeses... yummy warm your soul type food. Great atmosphere and good people.

Everything is made fresh. Local farms contribute and are noted in the menu. Nice beer tap selection (not run of the mill!) Sit at the bar for lunch and the service and advice are great.

a large number of craft beers available although none are made by the house. Good food selection. Park in a garage. Street parking is hard to find during the work week.

Friendly, helpful staff, great beer and amazing food. What more can you ask for. Hard to find, rare beers. I got Hill Farmstead Susan on tap. Corned beef breakfast sandwich for St. Patrick's day was perfectly cooked on fresh bread made next door. Now to make room and head back in. It's that good!

If you're looking for a gastro pub with a great selection of (proper) beer, look no further! The small space is always packed with guests, and the food never disappoints. The beer selection is a mix of great Belgians, some German and English items, and the rest are some of the better microbrews they can source. Definitely worth the trip... More

I've stopped in twice for a rare beer they had on draft. First time I had one of the best breakfast sandwiches I've ever had. Second time I had homemade Mac and cheese that was delicious. The menu is different, but everything seems to be homemade. Throw in an amazing beer list, and this is a must stop in Worcester.

Most creative bloody Mary's in Worcester! Can you say Bacon?! Great local beers on tap as well. Food menu is very creative from local farms.
